    we found an external hive in 1975 in a sweetgum bush, not tree . the hive was between a basketball and a beachball in size. they had enclosed the comb with wax much like a hornets nest. the only thing keeping the sweetgum from breaking over were several rattan vines hooked to other trees for support. we cut a hive off of an oak limb this past summer that had 6 pcs of comb and was about 12 " by 14" in size.
